5/Golden Rebar-2



Buried inside a big camp was this Gem.

I have no idea if this is a pure creation or a mass product shelter, this shelter looks one-of-a-kind.

Instant Golden Rebar.

Made of wood, the struts simply interlock with the hub connectors without nails or screws.
Simplicity and grace make a unique design. Magnificent!

The parachute hangs by small hooks at the center of the connector hubs.







Last but not least, the evaporating system. Unique. Bravo!

I was wondering about when you are erecting the dome frame how hard is it to put in the struts that interlock into the wooden hubs? Don't get me wrong I really like the design but is there some bending of the struts to get them into place? I have been considering building a dome frame in this way. I wish there was a site that showed how it was made or a video. It seems the smartest way to put together a temporary structure and it looks really good!

Hello Richard this is a really nice and simple structure. I guess like you mentioned there is some kind of bending on the struts. Years ago I was in touch with the designer of this structure, I am still waiting for his reply. I just saw it once at BRC, too bad, it is a very elegant solution to dome building.

I am sold on this design. I will have to make sure I have a bendable type of wood. It sure is as you say an elegant dome. Thanks for the reply. 😉
